Historic Adobes and Buildings

Our historic properties in the downtown have been shuttered during most of the 2018 due to lack of State Park funding. 

State Parks is amenable to a partnership to remedy this, but the City needs to take the lead in organizing a program of private/public partnerships to improve these properties (e.g., the First Theater) and provide volunteer staffing to keep them open.

Finally, we need to establish a non-profit civic foundation to receive tax-deductible donations to create a fund for financing landmark civic activities in the future, rather than relying on the general fund in tight economic times.

With my experience in negotiating with the State Parks and my on-going service on the Old Monterey Foundation Board, I will provide the leadership to move both of these objectives to completion.
